A world record attempt for the highest midsummer bonfire is underway outside Ålesund, Norway. The current record is 38 meter. The goal for this is 40 meter. Friday evening the bonfire will be lit.

Not for those with a fear of heights. The work is in its final phase, and they work more than 30 meters above the ground.

Solid workforce: Over 30 people participate in the construction of the bonfire.
